You can’t have 11 drives and barely get to 200 yards. As we discussed on the Morning After Podcast yesterday, the Cougars do not have a killer instinct. That has to change.
This team cannot afford to half-ass anything. They can out-talent Prairie View and throw up 3 ugly quarters and still win. But UH does not have the talent to coast against anyone else on the schedule.
In the 10 starting spots in the first two games, OL coach Brandon Jones has had 8 different starters. In his first two games since transferring, Justin Murphy has started at RG and RT. He’s now started at RG and RT in the same season at three different schools (Texas Tech, UCLA).
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!
Towns is a former UH athlete, having played baseball for the Cougars in the mid-90’s. He is most famous for walking 9 LSU batters in just 3 innings vs. LSU. He also fired a 2-hit complete game shutout of SFA.
